WGN America WKRP Marathon on Sunday; IMDb Adds Classic and Recent TV Shows and Movies for Free Viewing

WGN America has scheduled a marathon of the classic '70s sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati this Sunday (Sept. 21). After its regular Sunday 7-8pm ET airings, you'll see special two-part episodes from 8-10pm ET (preempting Newhart and Honeymooners this week only). So, WKRP will air from 7-10pm ET this Sunday. The 7-8pm airing will be the regular rotation episodes but the special episodes will be the two-part episodes "Dr. Fever and Mr. Tide" and and "An Explosive Affair."
We will have more on WGN America soon because they have special holiday marathons planned for many sitcoms, starting with Halloween. So stay tuned!

The Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com) has announced that users can now watch over 6,000 full-length feature films and TV episodes for free on IMDb.com.
With IMDb's new free video viewing service, viewers can watch hit shows like 24, Survivor, The Simpsons, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, Family Guy, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The only thing is that the episodes from these classic Sony, 20th Century, Paramount, and Universal series are already on DVD.

So head on over to their video section to watch classic and recent TV shows and movies.
